Round and Round

lyrics

Hook:

See my goal is to,
make music while feelin' like a million
live life and leave somethin' for my children
I’m well rounded
I plan to aim high but stay grounded
leave this place a little better than I found it
and stay moving round and round, round and round, round and round
I’m tryna keep the karma goin' for my peoples movin'
round and round, round and round, round and round
and keep that money circulating with my peoples feel me?

Verse 1:

Catch ya eye like a fire in the sky
like you got abducted by something flying unidentified
I ain’t lookin for a when, I ain’t tryna find a why
what’s my long term goal? to retire when I die
'til then recite these ill hymns, the choir I provide
oh you a rapper rapper? what they tell me when they hear me live
cause I ain’t rappin' over vocals lip syncing like I’m high
on some pay to play show performing with 25
grown men scared to show each other love yellin' no homo
Peter Pan Syndrome plus they gotta case of FOMO
fast forward the night wish they could replay it slow-mo
wondering how they woke up next to a chick that look like Momo
that’s why I roll dolo through these areas I’m walking through
when I hear you rap I gotta wonder who you talkin' too
It don’t resonate with me maybe the folks you market to
probably buss out laughin' if I ever rapped in Autotune
use to send my songs to DJ’s beggin' to play it
and want a record deal now gotta giggle when I say it
imagine that? use to record it on cassettes and a DAT
youngin' ask me what is that? I said don’t worry bout it scrap
keep doin what you doin flood the internet with music
make sure the quality match the quantity when you do it
stay true to yourself own your publishing and masters
long as it feeds your soul then that’s all that really matters

Hook:

See my goal is to,
make music while feelin' like a million
live life and leave somethin' for my children
I’m well rounded
I plan to aim high but stay grounded
leave this place a little better than I found it
and stay moving round and round, round and round, round and round
I’m tryna keep the karma goin' for my peoples movin'
round and round, round and round, round and round
and keep that money circulating with my peoples feel me?

Verse 2:

For me I need more than the beat just to be good
you gotta be saying something these requirements from T. Wood
man only if these walls could talk the way these streets could
seen some fools turn to old mules like Clint Eastwood
don’t trade 2 years of ballin' for 30 years of jail
that math don’t add up I don’t care if you learned it at Yale
having ya mama sell her house so you can make bail
you know them cameras can’t wait to capture your epic fail
keep pressin' no stressin' forget mistakes and learn lessons
you got possession block obstacles and keep receiving blessings
ain’t no participation trophies in this profession
some my songs might advise parental discretion
ain't no resting keep moving with aggression
avoid my idols, so they don’t ruin my perception
and my focus, "ain't nobody comin' to see you Otis"
no Temptations, I ain’t in no rush to make no quotas
y'all rap for quarters chump change outta sofas
drink tickets and sodas, pay to play to be the openers
don’t need to be the dopest in this race whatsoever
I ain’t much a runner but I keep walking forever

Hook:

See my goal is to,
make music while feelin' like a million
live life and leave somethin' for my children
I’m well rounded
I plan to aim high but stay grounded
leave this place a little better than I found it
and stay moving round and round, round and round, round and round
I’m tryna keep the karma goin' for my peoples movin'
round and round, round and round, round and round
and keep that money circulating with my peoples feel me?
